Norwich School: Guardianship & Intergration 25/04/2023

Watch our interview with Will Croston, the Director of the International Program and UCAS advisor at Norwich School, where we discuss the benefits of day school hosting for international students. We explore how this model has benefitted both international and domestic students, as well as the support process provided.

Gabbitas, in collaboration with Norwich School was the first British independent education consultancy to offer a day school to international students.

Since 2014, Gabbitas has helped hundreds of in qualifying for places at top British independent day schools, which would otherwise have been inaccessible to them.

This has created new opportunities for international students to fully immerse themselves in the day-to-day activities that British families offer their children, providing them with a more authentic experience, immersing them in English language and setting them up for life in the UK after they leave school.

We would like to extend a thank you to British Boarding Schools Network for welcoming the Gabbitas family to yet another successful event.

We were particularly impressed by the range of summer schools on offer this year.

This past November, Gabbitas attended the British Boarding Schools Network’s workshop. We had the privilege of meeting and connecting with our expanding schools’ network to better equip them with tools to engage with international pupils.

It was an insightful event, meeting headmasters and reps from our schools network and our industry partners – relaying our advice and our expertise to a wide range of international student issues and goals.

We would like to extend a warm thank you to Suzanne Rowse and Lisa Scott from BBSW for organising such a successful workshop.

Gabbitas’ heritage carries a cornerstone of educational expertise within independent education. Within these walls, students and families have paved their future with guidance from some of the most senior expert tutors in British history.

In this series we explore some of the most notable names of the Gabbitas Family. This month we remember Baron Taverne. Taverne was one of the most prominent UK politicians from the 1960s to the 1980s. He was one of a small number of British House of Commons’ members who was not a candidate of a major party. After being placed by Gabbitas as a teacher in 1952, he was elected the Labour Party member of parliament for Lincoln ten years later, working as Home Office Minister and Financial Secretary to the Treasury until 1970. But as his views further detached him from Labour, he set up the Lincoln Democratic Association before joining the Social Democratic Party – who went onto merge into the Liberal Democrats.

Since 1873, Gabbitas has tutored a wide range of students – from the young Harry Potter actors to European royalty, with the help of expert tutors.
